I Have Some Thoughts Today About Careful Eating (Video)

Hello weight losing fans...
(9262)
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205.2-pounds.
That's down from yesterday.

I had to make this video in a hurry because I am going out to work.
However, just like you I have to figure out what I am going to eat each day.

I posted a video of what I ate for breakfast. It was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with oatmeal bread. I had one cup of raisin bran cereal.

Today I shared my thoughts about being careful about what we eat. Even something as small as a sugar coated piece of gum, or a small shot of creamer can added extra calories that we lose track of.
It's these mindless, or unknown sources of calories that slow up our progress.

It's hard to develop good habits. Unlike bad habits that are so easy to develop and are hard to break, good habits are hard to develop, and are easy to lose.

The pseudo-psychologists will say once you develop a habit you have it for life. That's not true. Good habits are hard to develop, and they can be lost very easily.
Bad habits are easy to develop, and they are hard to lose, or break.
That's because it's in human nature to mess things up.

If you want to hear my brilliant words of wisdom: Click on the video.

If not then have a nice day....



Below is my video for what I ate today for breakfast.

Hunger, And More Hunger; We All Struggle With It

Hello weight losing fans...
(9247)
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205.6-pounds.
That's the same as yesterday.

Today I videoed my brunch again. It was different than yesterday's meal.
It came in at 835-calories.



I also made another short video that I added to this blog post. I talked again about the "Hunger Monster."

Over-and-over again I have written in the past that hunger is the number one problem for we the weight losers.

If we're stuffed and satisfied, then there is no temptation to overeat. But, if we're hungry, then anything can temp us.

Oh That Never Ending Nagging Hunger: "I HATE IT."

Hello weight losing fans...
(9208)
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205.6-pounds.

Today I posted again my breakfast. I cut back the calorie count by half. That's only because I ran out of bacon.




Today's video is a short one...

Again I Talked About Hunger

This isn't very popular to talk about. I have written about it many times before.
That nagging sense of empty feeling that creeps up within a matter of hours after eating, and can drive someone to open the refrigerator in search of something to eat.
It's that empty feeling that drives someone to eat a bunch off snacks before thinking about what he's doing.
Yes it's hunger. It's my number one enemy.

You'll have to learn to resist hunger. That is if you really are determined to lose weight.

You'll have to ask a bunch of questions of yourself:
1. Did I eat today already?
2. Is this food that I really need?
3. Will this help me get to my target, or weight loss goal?
4. Will I go over my calorie count for the day?

These are just some of the questions that I ask myself.

If you wish to know more, the please view today's video post.

More About Keeping Tabs On Those Calories

Hello weight losing fans...
(9187)
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 206.2-pounds.
That's down from yesterday.

Today I had another large breakfast.
See the Video if you're curious.



I found the video editor; thanks to a friend.

Today is a rather long video. It's two parts.
Just remember that I am still learning how to post these videos and to edit them.

Today's video is a recap of my calorie count for yesterday.
I also added in an admonition to ignore people who comment about what you are doing with your weight lose program.

They Try To Effect Our Three Senses, And Then We Get Tempted (Two Videos)

Hello weight losing fans...
(9172)
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 207.2-pounds.
That's down from yesterday.

Did you want to see what I ate for breakfast today?
Here is the video that I took. It's loaded up with fat, and calories. Oh David, how could you do that?
How could you eat that kind of food? Aren't you worried about the fat?
Well, NO... I have said that it is the total calories (amount of food) that's consumed.

If I am careful with my calories, then of course my fat grams, sugar grams, and other miscellaneous foods that everyone is paranoid about fall right into line with the appropriate levels.

If you desire to see what I ate and hear my commentary, then open up the video below.




Then, Of Course, You'll Want To Hear My Unbelievable, Dynamic Video filled with Wisdom that will launch you into the stratosphere of weight loss infamy. (Oh I make myself laugh.)

In this video I posted I talked about my calorie count for breakfast; 785 calories. With one cup of whole milk, my calorie count was over 935 calorie for breakfast. And, that was because I added on a 150 calorie cup of whole milk.

Oh David, Why would you do that? Ummm, I was hungry.... ! OH DAVID.... !!!!!!!!!

I also talked about in this video about our three senses that effect us: Sight, Smell, and Taste.
I mentioned that I ask myself questions. Do I really need to eat this today? Did I eat Breakfast already? Will what I am about to eat help me get closer to my goal?

If you want to see what had to say, please open up the video, and see my brilliance... (Oh I make myself laugh some more.)

Gee, How Many Calories Are In Cereal Anyway? (Video)

Hello weight losing fans...
(9151)

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 208-pounds.

Today I am posting a video that is a continuation of what I was talking about yesterday.
I showed just some of the food that I eat for breakfast, and what the calorie counts for those items were.

The calories add up fast when consuming high carbohydrate filled foods like cereals that are coated with sugar for flavor.



Here you can see a photograph of one page of my log book. It's not complicated.



You can see that I keep a very simple list in my log. I put the day of the week, the date, and the weight, along with a list of the kind of food, with the calories added up.

That's all for now...

Eating Out At The Tailgate Party, Or A Special Event

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 210.4-pounds.

In today's video I showed some of the foods we may encounter at a party, a get together to watch a game, or just a special event.

I demonstrated using a hamburger patty, hamburger bun, some peanuts, along with some breaded chicken pieces, how quickly the calories add up when we endlessly eat out as some kind of special event like a tailgate-party.

When we snack mindlessly on peanuts, chips, pretzels and other snack foods, the calories add up fast. These snacks may be the food that puts over the cliff for our weight loss calorie count for the day. That is, if we are counting calories at all.

Watch the attached video if you want to see my smiling face.

No Video Blog Today

Hello weight losing fans...
(9121)
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 210.4-pounds.

That's the same that I was about a week ago when I last posted.

I don't have a video post today.

I must tell you that I spent Two nights, and three days at my cousins. I didn't keep a written record of my food consumption for Sunday evening, all of Monday, and all of Tuesday. When I got up Wednesday, I was able to weigh again, and write my food intake down. I tried to recall what I ate on the other days. It was futile, I missed a lot of stuff.

I did go overboard, which explains why I am not further down with my weight loss. I haven't been making any videos either, partially because I have been getting comments from friends and family who think I should use a script, and that I should stop trying to be funny.
I have also, like the writing thing, run out of ideas. It's hard to come up with a new video.
There aren't too many different ways to say, "EAT LESS FOOD."

That's it in a nutshell. I can't keep eating huge amount of food, and expect to see my weight remain normal. You can't either, especially as we age.

Gastrointestinal-By-Pass Surgery; Why Are You Doing It?

Hello Weight Losing Fans...
(9018)

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 210.4-pounds.
That's down from yesterday.

Today I went into a little bit of a diatribe about gastrointestinal-by-pass surgery. This is the surgery where the doctor reroutes the stomach piping and produces a small pocket.

I mentioned that I am not a doctor and that my commentary is my personal opinion.
I am not in favor of this kind of surgery. I would rather see someone use a modified version of the "Doctor Atkins Diet," than to summit to this kind of butchery.

I have written about it in the past. If you wish to see what I had to say just open up my you tube post.

(Unfortunately the video that I was trying to load was too long. You tube wouldn't publish it. So, today the is not video.)

I Had A Sudden Weight Drop (Video)

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 210.8-pounds.
That's down 4-pounds from yesterday. I said that it was probably water retention.

Gee, My Weight Has Jumped Up Again?

Hello weight losing fans...
(8948)

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 214.8-pounds.
Oh, oh what happened?
I don't know why I am gaining more weight. I have been using test strips to measure Ketones. The strips have been changing color, which means that I am burning fat.

I suspect that my body is retaining water. This is in my opinion as a response to trying to lose weight with a low calorie diet, along with a higher ratio of protein intake.

See the video if you wish.

I Am Burning Fat, Then Why The Gain?

Hello weight losing fans...
(8928)

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 213.8-pounds.

Now that's up from just a couple days ago. In this video post I explain that I don't know why my weight has jumped like this. It might be water retention.

I also explained that I am burning fat. I ran a test strip through my urine and found that it is turning purple. This means I am burning fat.

If you wish to know a little more then please take the time to watch the video.

My Second Post For Today, Some Old Photos

Hello weight losing fans...
(8908)

This is my second posting for today.
I discovered some photos of me from the past. These pictures of me were taken around August 2000. This is when I weighed in at 260-pounds.




This first photo was taken when I was 9 1/2 years old by my brother Arthur who was exercising his photographic genius. This is me against the bales-of-straw with my twin brother Daniel holding up the bow and arrow.

Cookies For Breakfast? Oh The Evil Of It.... (Video)

Hello weight losing fans...
(8902)

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 213-pounds.

That's up from yesterday. Oh, the evil, I must have done something wrong.

Today I was talking about what I ate for breakfast this morning. I had a bag of Corn Chips, and two large peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. This dynamic breakfast came in at over 700 calories for the morning. OH that was so evil David.

I also made a little mocking of some of the criticism that I have received for writing this blog. That's right someone had the nerve to criticize me for a weight loss blog. In her words, "It's boring."

That's right, it's boring. It's boring, and it's tedious trying to lose weight. I want you to know that you aren't the only one who struggles.

If you have the ability to, please do take the time to watch my boring video. Just remember don't fall asleep while you are watching this boring episode.

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 212.8-pounds.

That's up from yesterday.

I had video that I thought I might want to post today. Only it was very strong in it's content. In other words, it didn't look really friendly to me after I thought about it.

So, I am not going to post it.

I had someone criticize my video from yesterday, and I was told how horrible I looked in the video. I was also told that I was wasting my time posting on the internet.

This person considers herself a very observant person with great people skills. Well, I went on a bit a tirade about it in my video. I decided I am not posting it. Today will be a regular day.
No VIDEO.

Today I compared Sugar Water To Soda Pop (Video)

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 212-pounds.
Oh wow, I wasn't even trying.

Today is my third video post. I am talking about what we drink. In this case I am talking about Soda-pop.

I made a little scientific demonstration using twelve ounces of water, along with 10 teaspoons of white sugar.

Simply stated 10-teaspoons of white sugar times 15 calories per teaspoon is 150 calories.
I poured the white sugar into the water, and then stirred the contents up.

I compared the 12 ounces of sugar water to a twelve ounce can of regular Soda-pop. If you are interested then tune into the video. If you don't have a way to watch this... awww, sorry.

My First Attempt At Video Blogging

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 214.2-pounds.
That's better than yesterday. It's still a long way from that 180-pounds I was at just a couple of years ago.

A couple of days before Christmas I was out purchasing gifts for family members. I decided that I too should have a Christmas gift. So I purchased this cute little digital camera. I have wanted one for a long time, yet have always resisted getting one.

Today I decided to try video recording some comments that I wanted to post here on this blog.

All of one person may want to watch. But, it's here for the world to see.

There are two parts posted because I got interrupted by a telephone call. I don't know how I am going to continue with this in the future. We shall see.

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 216.2-pounds.

That's down from yesterday, but it's a long way from 180-pounds where I used to be.

Yesterday I wrote my first article for 2011. My point of that article was; no one can lose that weight for you.

All the support systems in the world won't work unless you find it somewhere in yourself to be motivated enough to lose weight and keep it off.

I mean it....

No Body Knows But You

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 216.6-pounds.

Yep that's up, up, and up.....

So, what's that to you?
I repeat what's that to you?

Here is what I mean. Does it make any difference to you if I weigh 180-pounds or 200-pounds?
NO, it doesn't make any difference in your life.....

Let me let you know a little secret: "I don't give a darn what you weigh." I mean it... If you want to go out there and stuff your face with all kinds of calories; I don't care......!!!!!!!!!!

Who should care? YOU, that's right you should care about you. NOT your wife, not your spouse, not your brother, not your dog should give a rat's tail what you stuff in your mouth.

I have a friend that thinks it's cute to remind me that I eat junk. My friend isn't around me at all to watch what I eat. None of my friends are, but they have the nerve to criticize and make fun of me regaining weight. As if that's going to help me change my behavior?

I haven't been writing that much about this "Weight loss thing." Here is why; how many ways can you say, "EAT LESS?" How many articles can I publish that would help you?
NONE, will help you....

That's right none will help you. NO ONE can stand over you 24 hours a day and make you modify your diet. Who wants too? No one except that WITCH Michelle Obama.

It's 2011: I didn't make a "New Years Resolution." Especially if I think I may have to pacify some nutty fat person that's hanging on every printed word of mine.....

OH that's right, don't hang on my words. I don't hang on yours. That's right fat folks, nothing, absolutely nothing you can write to me inspires me to lose more weight. Here is why, I forget just about everything you write anyway.
Not only is that so, but most every fat person that has commented on my blog that has ever crossed verbal swords with me has regained some of the poundage.

I have never pretended that losing weight was easy. I have never said that I have arrived. I have always warned that I too could lose it.

So take my advice.... Ignore the critics, and Ignore the "friends." That's right, because it will get real old having someone reminding you that you are on a diet....

IN FACT... If you want to lose weight this year, don't tell a blinking soul. Just do it.......

My friends have become the worst about "my weight loss." My family makes the comments; "Are you still losing weight?" HEY are you still a moron?

I have tried to be kind. I have tried to diplomatic. I have tried... But, the friends, and family will make comments that "I am eating junk all the time." Then they laugh, and say, "I am only kidding."

NO you aren't kidding, you're making a dig at me for some reason.... The same goes for you.....

HEY FATTY..... Lose some pounds....

Bye for now...

Happy New Year.... FATSO, OH David how could you?

Just one more thing; if you are like me you don't like messing with the "word match programs," that make it possible to post a comment. Well, I am sick of freaks posting links to pornography from China, and else where. I didn't write this so some pervert could link my posts to pornographic web sites. Sorry about that...

And that's the way it is... I'm David Dane
